Liquitex Acrylic Transfers Projec


Use any of the following Liquitex Mediums:

  • Gloss Medium & Varnish
  • Gloss Gel
  • Gloss
  • Heavy Gel.


  1. Acrylic transfers allow you to essentially grab the ink layer of a copied or printed material and embed it into the acrylic film. Incorporate extraordinary photographs or newspaper clippings into your painting or collage without sacrificing the original. Non-stick surface using tape or a few brush strokes of Gloss Medium & Varnish. This will prevent any buckling of the image.
  1. Apply a thin, even coat of any Liquitex Gloss Gel or Gloss Medium & Varnish (approximately 1/8" thick), completely covering the entire surface of the image.
  1. Allow to dry until the medium is fully transparent. Detach the image from the surface and immerse in water for about 10 minutes until the paper is saturated.
  1. Soft sponge. Set the transfer aside to dry. (The acrylic medium may become cloudy when wet, but will dry clear.)
  1. When the medium is dry to the touch, the transfer can be permanently attached to any support using Gloss Medium & Varnish or any Liquitex Gel Medium.

An unlimited number of creative applications exist, in addition transfers onto clothing (such as hats, T-shirts, sweatshirts, and shoes), decorate household or craft items (ceramic tiles, furniture, lampshades, cups, boxes, pillows, quilts), or even apply to mirrors, windows, or framed glass for stained glass effects.
